I have no info on that. But IMO in lieu of the extinct Shatabdi, the Hubli Jan Shatabdi was introduced.

There are also the Mumbai-Pune and SBC-UBL Shatabdi's (Both introduced in 1995). One of them would be the first intrastate Shatabdi. MAS-CBE was the initial proposal, that was later side-lined in favor of a SBC-UBL Shatabdi, however due to political pressure, MAS-CBE was re-announced again.
